"It's a poignant, thought-provoking account of a struggle that resonates with today's political and religious issues. It's also knee-slappin' funny."

You'll laugh, you'll cry, and maybe even leap up off your seat in song as Lee Boek takes you on a jubilant and heartfelt behind-the-scenes look at his life as a fundamentalist evangelist.
Boek's one-man show (with rotating musicians that include Mitch Greenhill and Roberta Levitow), takes us on a thought-provoking, musical, feet-stompin', up-off-your-seat hallelujahin' poignant journey through his life as a travelin' preacher. How does he get carried so deep into religion and why does he get out?
Situated in the '50s and at the emergence of the civil rights movement in the early '60s, Boek shows us a piece of Americana full of humanity and struggle that resonates with today's major political and religious issues.
